Making a claim
Claims should usually be made within a three-year window.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
In most cases, there are three components to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Making your claim as soon as possible will enable your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
